TAFCO Equipment Company started as a partnership of three friends in 1963 when they purchased a small truck equipment company in Blue Earth, Minnesota.  TAFCO was later incorporated in 1970.

TAFCO took the frameless trailer a step further when they designed the revolutionary Scott Steel Grain Body.  By 1973, TAFCO’s steel grain bodies and truck accessories were so popular that TAFCO was in need of an additional plant. Continued on by the success of the grain bodies and truck accessories, TAFCO had to expand once again in 1977.  TAFCO became the first company in the U.S. to make aluminum running boards “Silver Stirrups” and they were a great success.
